What's being said

  • I would put my name down, but sitting next to Bret at the PBA luncheons is enough exposure

    Wait???! An attorney whose word is his bond?! When has that every happened - I mean that they keep their word?

    Bret, you really need to think about how your firm will be viewed by the public, the people of the Pinecrest Business association - I mean privately, because you know how much we all value the way we are perceived, publicly.

    I will be supporting the candidate because you have thrown away a competent attorney after a decade, not allowed your dispassion to rule and allow the chips to fall where they may.

    A father can not put food on the table because you chose to terminate him, because there are more things going on behind the scenes than you are letting on.

    Perhaps an Ethics investigation by the JQC and Bar? If a Judge is too worried that he will fail to a challenger, it shows how vulnerable he would be to opposition. Perhaps more people need to run against this weak incumbent?
